ms paint

I captured a screenshot in ms paint (I think it is in .png format). but I can't figure out how to drag it down so I cansee the red X to close it.

Hey, you can use:

Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the active window or restore the window if itís maximized
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the active window to each side of the monitor

What do you want to do with the red X. If you have the screenshot in Paint, you have to save it. Then you close Paint. If nothing works, try ALT+F4.

Maybe the Paint window is to large to see it all on the monitor ???
You could try adjusting screen resolution and/or text size.

You could also open the snipping tool and capture the screen (with mspaint open) and save it.
Post that and we can see what your paint window looks like.

Did the F11 key get pressed which put it into Full Screen [different from Maximized]? If so pressing F11 again should restore it.

Are you saying when you reboot the paint window opens automatically, with what you had before the reboot ?

Can you right click on the Paint icon in the taskbar and click Close window ?
